Rare 'lifestyle' opportunity in a stunning woodland setting adjacent to St Patricks’ Church, Rowlands Gill - a beautiful period, three bedroom detached house (former vicarage), set in approximately 0.7 acres of gardens and woodland, versatile former Church Hall in the grounds, extensive driveway and detached garage. Viewing is essential to appreciate the special and unique nature of this home.

St Patricks Parsonage, circa 1890, is situated in a very special rural location on an elevated site adjacent to St Patricks’ Church, with fantastic views over the surrounding fields and countryside. The house has been refurbished over the last 4 years, with redecoration throughout, recarpeting, a fabulous new kitchen fitted and the opening up of the kitchen and former dining room, three woodburning stoves fitted by 'Stanegate Stoves', and excellent ‘Hammonds' fitted wardrobes fitted to two of the bedrooms.

Other works include the addition of lovely bespoke picture windows within the sitting room, to take in the views over the woodland and surrounding countryside and create superb natural light to the room, a new gas central heating system installed, a new shower system in the family bathroom and further landscaping of the beautiful mature gardens.

Further bespoke picture windows have been added to the dining room, including French doors to a patio area.

The former Church Hall, currently with multi functional use, offers great potential as either a home office, studio, or annexe for multi generational living. The building could also have potential (subject to normal planning consents and restrictive Covenants) to develop into a separate dwelling as it has its own driveway and access from the main road.

The house has retained many original features including wood floorboards, built in cabinets and storage in the sitting and dining rooms, stripped pine internal doors, cast iron fireplaces to the bedrooms
